Not pancakes, but?? Wife and I made 3 stacks of these yesterday.

A clue. It's a delicacy at the Christmas season for many, especially Norwegians.

You risk being disowned.....but see if you can sneak some "instant potato" lefse in the mix...this is really easy to make compared to doing the real taters with peeling and dicing,etc.

My opinion is this is as good as the real thing IF you eat it the first day it gets made, and first warm it in the microwave.

Wife has her own recipe, and she is out of town, but this one is close.

I don't know, but I know what that wooden thing with the handle next to it is. It's an arm extension. When I was a little kid, my grandmother had one over both sides of every door of every room in her house, lying flat on those big old door trims that were 1" thick. This is how they worked when we were kids, all of us, the cousins too. Grandma was very, very, very old in her fifties, or at least it seemed to us when we were like four, five, six years old and stuff, and she was big and heavy, probably 150 pounds, which was enormous when we were four, five, six years old, and she couldn't run as fast as we could, but she didn't need to. Whenever we were bad and knew we were bad and it was time to run, we turned to run from her, but she always reached up to the top of a door jam trim, pulled down one of her trusty arm extenders, and WHACK, WHACK, WHACK like Zorro, problem solved, we lost every time. She could get five or six of us all within a second or two if we were close to each other, and close to any door in her house. We never won once ever.

You and your wife? Got those real tall old doors with huge old thick trim? Got one of them arm extenders over both sides of every door? I still got bumps on my head 50 years later. They work.

I was raised knowing them as palacinke, aka Czech pancakes. Palacinke was a regular thin pancake, aka crepe.
If made as potato cakes with cheese it was palacinke skuto.

Funny how so many cultures have their own traditions and names for food that is quite similar throughout the world.


Jean Girald would call them "crepes". Ricky Bobby would say they are "really thin pancakes".
Sorry, I watch Talladaga Nights too much.

Now you got me wondering -

My grandmother was from Lithuania -

Her pancake recipe came down through my father to me - it's simply one egg, one cup of milk, one cup of flower.

It makes very thin pacakes - like crepes.

Is that what you're referring to?

Being not-so-highly-refined americans, we never had a fancy name for them like "Palacinke" - we referred to them as "rubber pancakes" (since they were, well, rubbery pancakes).

I still eat them today, I perfer them to "regular" pancakes, as do my kids.

JRSutton,

Yes what you are making are Palacinkes. They way I was taught to pronounce it was "paul-o-sink".
Palacinke is the generic term for pancakes in Czech, as far as what I was taught. Whether they were flour based, potato based, etc.

Unfortunately the grandparents are all gone now, so my knowledge of the language continues to slip. My great grandfather always said I came to America we will speak English. He had quite a thick accent, but learned and spoke English. He said the US gave him the opportunity for a new life by escaping the persecution during WWI, the least he could do was speak the language. Czech was only spoke at home.

Yaa, a Norwegian delicacy, tis true!

lefse smaker fint med smøret og brun sukkeret

or meatballs, a favorite of my late dad's; my mom's strawberry freezer jam for Christmas Eve and day.

A song goes "...for patching up the kitchen floor or tile upon the roof...and some folks think it's even good to eat..."

Havin' some for supper tonight with 'butcher shop' bologna, hashbrowns and cream style corn.

oh så fint

Not Norwegian, but looks like good lefse...so good a Kraut would eat it. It is good lightly buttered and eaten like bread (I skip the sugar). Good with turkey or ham rolled up in it, or peanut butter or even tuna salad. Never tried chicken taco meat, but that might be good too.

In the country near Waseca, MN

Saskatchewan has a "Waseca" also and we visited there some years ago.

I've been told the name Waseca means fertile soil.

Thanks for all the responses. Lefse, it is.

Always round? Ours comes out in many sizes and shapes. Probably because we only make it once a year.

In addition to Ulen, there is a company in Spicer that makes it too and we have purchased some from there. Probably several other companies that make it.

Raw trout? Is that really lutefisk?

Desert Rose plate you bet. We have some made in USA and some made in England.

The stick is too thin at the outer end to stir paint. It would pretty easily break.

This griddle is not made specifically for lefse, but that's all we use it for.

Just yankin' yer chain, Ron. My Mom was a master of lefse, and that's probably why ours was always round. My sister, who now has her lefse griddle, is not so much, so she often has out of round lefse, but we love her anyway.

I think lutefisk is codfish that has been soaked in lye (and yes, it is fully as good as it sounds!). Don't know about the aged trout- what is the Scandihoovian name for it, B & D?

Quote from Garrison Keillor's book Lake Wobegon Days:
Every Advent we entered the purgatory of lutefisk, a repulsive gelatinous fishlike dish that tasted of soap and gave off an odor that would gag a goat. We did this in honor of Norwegian ancestors, much as if survivors of a famine might celebrate their deliverance by feasting on elm bark. I always felt the cold creeps as Advent approached, knowing that this dread delicacy would be put before me and I'd be told, "Just have a little." Eating a little was like vomiting a little, just as bad as a lot.

Lutefisk is codfish that's caught, soaked in lye, then dried until it becomes the general consistency of a termite-eaten 2x4 (though not near as tasty), then dunked in a big vat of water to reconstitute it. When it's in that vat, you gotta keep dunking it under the surface, and canoe paddles are often used for that task, since the codfish sometimes doesn't know it's been dead for several years and tries to jump out of the vat. When it comes out of that water, it's unceremoniously dumped into a cauldron of boiling water. This step, in a Lutheran church supper, is often done in a tent outside, since the stench is so overpowering as to destroy everyone's appetite. Once it has reached the consistency of firm snot, it is served, generally along with mashed potatoes, meatballs and gravy, white bread and lefse (with butter and sugar).

Hey Big Fred, that is a perfect description of the makings of a Lutefisk dinner.

Ve always ate it vith boiled potatoes and a chalky white gravy, helped to kill the taste of the Lutefisk. I could always tell vhen Lutefisk vas on the stove. You could smell the stench as soon as you valked in the door. Ve would buy the lutefisk at the local market that vas in a wooden barrel. All the Scandanavians in the area vould come and buy it around Christmas. Herring too, that ve would pickle with lots of onions.

Well, sure, Big Fred- of course it sounds good, when you hype it like that. . .

My brother in law is as Norwegian as it gets, and when his church had a lutefisk dinner, his comment was, "Thats some pretty nasty stuff, right there. . ."

Fred----I couldn"t have ever described it more accurately....I married into a Norwegian family and was introduced to lutefisk at a family event......I politely tried it once....that is one of the few foods that I refuse to eat!!

It has been 46 years since the first and last time I ate it.

Love the lefse though....

I don't know what you are making but, that plate is "Desert Rose" by Fransiscan (sp). They are not made in the USA anymore. On the back of the plate, is it stamped made in USA? If it is...you might want to put it up.

That is one of the patterns I collect.

And in my family, it was made on a lefse griddle. Yep, Mom had a special griddle that was made especially for lefse, nothing else was ever cooked on it, and lefse was never made on anything else. Thinking back on it, I don't even remember where it was kept in the off-season. My sister inherited it after Mom died.
